My favorite podcast

This is my favorite podcast! These guys are interesting, down to earth, and hilarious!

Posidonius The Stoic ,

Accidental comedy duo

In another life, Ed and JD could have been a duo to rival Rhett and Link. The synergy and banter is incredible. Oh yeah, the commentary is pretty good too.

Yoga is a No Go.

I enjoy these two so much that it is with great sorrow that I read Mr. Condon make excuses for practicing another religion, Yoga. I pray he learns it is not the Yoga language nor the person’s intentions and beliefs nor the money that finds it way around Yoga that makes it offensive. It is the fact that Yoga is the religion of another country and incompatible with the Catholic Church. It is the physical position of the human body that invites a foreign spirit into the human body. One only needs to take the intended Yoga position for the invitation to occur. It doesn’t require money or the saying of specific words or personal belief; IT IS THE YOGA POSITION ITSELF THAT PROVIDES THE INVITATION TO THE god OF THAT POSITION INTO THE HUMAN BODY. The pointing out of how other Yoga practitioners use language and make money and are all-in on Yoga is smoke and mirrors and you are only fooling yourself; especially while you, yourself, are doing Yoga. A cleaning of your bathroom mirror may required . God help us and our canon lawyers. I pray Mr. Condon finds a stretching and or physical therapy routine that helps him feel better, just not Yoga. Don’t tell J.D. , but you used to be my favorite. You may be again when you quit the Yoga. My rosary and extra Lenten prayers today with be prayed for you. Peace be with you.
